  • [2] Van Abbe Museum
    08/07/18 05:49 Van Abbe Museum The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important. We challenge ourselves and our visitors to think about art and its place in the world, covering a range of subjects, including the role of the collection as a cultural 'memory' and the museum as a public site. International collaboration and exchange have made the Van Abbemuseum a place for creative cross-fertilisation and a source of surprise, inspiration and imagination for its visitors and participants.

  • [12] Garage Imperia - voiture abandonnée - avant
    09/06/18 05:49 Imperia Impéria was a Belgian automobile manufactured from 1906 until 1948. Products of the Ateliers Piedboeuf of Liège, the first cars were designed by the German Paul Henze. These were fours of 3, 4.9, and 9.9 liters. /.../ Impéria produced a monobloc 12 hp (8.9 kW) in 1909; in 1910 the company merged with Springuel. The factory producing Impéria-Abadals from about 1916; in 1921, it built three ohc 5·6-liter straight-eights. These were quickly replaced by an ephemeral ohc 3-liter 32-valve four which was capable of going 90 mph (140 km/h). This was followed by an 1100 cc side-valve 11/22 hp four designed by Couchard, one of the first cars ever built with a sunroof. Its engine rotated counter-clockwise, and its transmission brake also served as a servo for those on the front wheels. In 1937 a six of 1624 cc appeared; this had been available in three-carburettor Super Sports form from 1930. Over the course of four years Impéria took over three other Belgian car manufacturers: Métallurgique (1927), Excelsior (1929), and Nagant (1931). From 1934 until the company folded it built mainly front-wheel-drive Adlers with Belgian-made coachwork. The company merged with Minerva in 1934, but they split in 1939. After 1948 Impéria assembled Adlers and Standard Vanguards under license. After Standard decided to set up a new factory in Belgium, the factory was left without work and had to close doors in 1957. In 1925, the company hired Louis de Monge as chief research engineer. Some of his work included torsion bar suspension and automatic transmissions. De Monge left in 1937 to join Ettore Bugatti for whom he would design the Bugatti 100P racer plane. In addition to its production in Belgium, Impéria made a number of cars in Great Britain; these were assembled at a factory in Maidenhead. Rooftop test track Around and on top of the factory buildings, there was a test track over 1km long. The track was built in 1928. The test drivers used the roads of the village, a road with a lot of bends. Speeding and high revving engines made the population mad and they were no longer willing to support the factory. The only solution was to build a test track within the factory and using the football field of the local football club. The ring started within the factory, then over the roof which gave a track of about one kilometre. Only Fiat had a similar track. This little test track became an attraction in the region. A little causeway allowed people to climb onto the nearside hill to watch the spectacle of car testing over the factories roofs. And now Now most of the buildings are occupied by a firm of construction, and a few sheds and batiments are so ruined that the roof risks to collapse. There are still two vehicles (under the dust and the building materials), among which one may be an Imperia model. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    26/06/18 05:49 Burning Van Abbe Museum (Xavier de Richemont ) GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture Eindhoven 2011 - 6th Edition - 'Illusion and reality' Due to the dedication of CityDynamiek Eindhoven, from November, 5th to 12th, 2011, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light. Location: van Abbemuseum About the project: This work by Xavier de Richemont was the opening act at the launch of GLOW in 2006. Because five years ago only a few people have actually seen it, this year a repetition follows. A performance on the outer walls of the Van Abbe Museum suggests the building is on fire and burns within minutes. The projection is strong and closely matches the shape of the building, so the actual structure of the museum disappears and the fire looks genuine. With this work De Richemont refers to a quote from Pablo Picasso, where he calls for burning down the museums, because creativity is only locked up here. By taking down the proverbial walls, the gap between art and audience can be closed. The accompanying music is inspired by a composition of Claude Débussy. From Glow 2011 website.

  • [20] Istanbul, Basilica Cistern
    27/06/18 05:49 The Basilica Cistern (Turkish: Yerebatan Sarayı - "Sunken Palace", or Yerebatan Sarnıcı - "Sunken Cistern"), is the largest of several hundred ancient cisterns that lie beneath the city of Istanbul (formerly Constantinople), Turkey. The cistern, located 500 feet (150 m) southwest of the Hagia Sophia on the historical peninsula of Sarayburnu, was built in the 6th century during the reign of Byzantine Emperor Justinian I. History The name of this subterranean structure derives from a large public square on the First Hill of Constantinople, the Stoa Basilica, beneath which it was originally constructed. Before being converted to a cistern, a great Basilica stood in its place, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries during the Early Roman Age as a commercial, legal and artistic centre. The basilica was reconstructed by Ilius after a fire in 476. Ancient texts indicated that the basilica contained gardens, surrounded by a colonnade and facing the Church of Hagia Sophia According to ancient historians, Emperor Constantine built a structure that was later rebuilt and enlarged by Emperor Justinian after the Nika riots of 532, which devastated the city. Historical texts claim that 7,000 slaves were involved in the construction of the cistern. The enlarged cistern provided a water filtration system for the Great Palace of Constantinople and other buildings on the First Hill, and continued to provide water to the Topkapı Palace after the Ottoman conquest in 1453 and into modern times. In media The cistern was used as a location for the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love. In the film, it is referred to as being constructed by the Emperor Constantine, with no reference to Justinian. Its location is a considerable distance from the Soviet (now Russian) consulate, which is located in Beyoğlu, the "newer" European section of Istanbul, on the other side of the Golden Horn. The finale of the 2009 film The International takes place in a fantasy amalgam of the Old City, depicting the Basilica Cistern as lying beneath the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, which, in the film, is directly adjacent to the Süleymaniye Mosque. In the 2011 video game, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, the player controlled character, Ezio Auditore, is given the chance to explore a section of this cistern in a memory sequence entitled The Yerebatan Cistern.

It is also called Kubbealtı, which means "under the dome", in reference to the dome in the council main hall. It is situated in the northwestern corner of the courtyard next to the Gate of Felicity. The first Council chambers in the palace were built during the reign of Mehmed II, and the present building dates from the period of Süleyman the Magnificent by the chief architect Alseddin. It has since undergone several changes, was much damaged and restored after the Harem fire of 1665, and according to the entrance inscription it was also restored during the periods of Selim III and Mahmud II. From the 18th century onwards, the place began to lose its original importance, as state administration was gradually transferred to the Sublime Porte (Bâb-ı Âli) of the Grand Viziers. The last meeting of the Council in the palace chambers was held on Wednesday, August 30, 1876, when the cabinet (Vükela Heyeti) met to discuss the state of Murat V, who had been indisposed for some time. The council hall has multiple entrances both from inside the palace and from the courtyard. The porch consists of multiple marble and porphyry pillars, with an ornate green and white-coloured wooden ceiling decorated with gold. The floor is covered in marble. The entrances into the hall from outside are in the rococo style, with gilded grills to admit natural light. While the pillars are earlier Ottoman style, the wall paintings and decorations are from the later rococo period. Inside, the Imperial Council building consists of three adjoining main rooms. Two of the three domed chambers of this building open into the porch and the courtyard. The Divanhane, built with a wooden portico at the corner of the Divan Court (Divan Meydani) in the 15th century, was later used as the mosque of the council but was removed in 1916. There are three domed chambers: - The first chamber where the Imperial Council held its deliberations is the Kubbealtı. - The second chamber was occupied by the secretarial staff of the Imperial Divan. - In the adjacent third chamber called Defterhāne (this view) , records were kept by the head clerks. The last room also served as a document archive. On its facade are verse inscriptions, which mention the restoration work carried out in 1792 and 1819, namely under Sultan Selim III and Mahmud II. The rococo decorations on the façade and inside the Imperial Council date from this period. The main chamber Kubbealtı is, however, decorated with Ottoman Kütahya tiles. Three long sofas along the sides were the seats for the officials, with a small hearth in the middle. The small gilded ball that hangs from the ceiling represents the earth. It is placed in front of the sultan's window and symbolizes him dispensing justice to the world, as well as keeping the powers of his viziers in check. In the Imperial Council meetings, the political, administrative and religious affairs of the state and important concerns of the citizens were discussed. The Imperial Council normally met four times a week (Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday) after prayer at dawn. The meetings of the Imperial Council were run according to an elaborate and strict protocol. Council members such as the Grand Vizier, viziers, chief military officials of the Muslim Judiciary (Kazaskers) of Rumelia and Anatolia, the Minister of Finance or heads of the Treasury (defterdar), the Minister of Foreign Affairs (Reis-ül-Küttab) and sometimes the Grand Müfti (Sheikh ül-İslam) met here to discuss and decide the affairs of state. Other officials who were allowed were the Nişancilar secretaries of the Imperial Council and keepers of the royal monogram (tuğra) and the officials charged with the duty of writing official memoranda (Tezkereciler), and the clerks recording the resolutions. From the window with the golden grill, the Sultan or the Valide Sultan was able to follow deliberations of the council without being noticed. The window could be reached from the imperial quarters in the adjacent Tower of Justice (Adalet Kulesi). When the sultan rapped on the grill or drew the red curtain, the Council session was terminated, and the viziers were summoned one by one to the Audience Hall (Arz Odası) to present their reports to the sultan. All the statesmen, apart from the Grand Vizier, performed their dawn prayers in the Hagia Sophia and entered the Imperial Gate according to their rank, passing through the Gate of Salutation and into the divan chamber, where they would wait for the arrival of the Grand Vizier. The Grand Vizier performed his prayers at home, and was accompanied to the palace by his own attendants. On his arrival there, he was given a ceremonial welcome, and before proceeding to the imperial divan, he would approach the Gate of Felicity and salute it as if paying his respects to the gate of the sultan's house. He entered the chamber and took his seat directly under the sultan's window and council commenced. Affairs of the state were generally discussed until noon, when the members of the Council dined in the chambers and after which petitions were heard here. All the members of Ottoman society, men and women of all creeds, were granted a hearing. An important ceremony was held to mark the first Imperial Council of each new Grand Vizier, and also to mark his presentation with the Imperial Seal (Mühr-ü Hümayûn). The most important ceremony took place every three months during the handing out of salaries (ulûfe) to the Janissaries. The reception of foreign dignitaries was normally arranged for the same day, creating an occasion to reflect the wealth and might of the state. Ambassadors were then received by the Grand Vizier in the Council chambers, where a banquet was held in their honour.

  • [25] Istanbul, Rüstem Paşa Camii
    24/06/18 05:49 The Rüstem Pasha Mosque (Turkish: ' Rüstempaşa Camii') is an Ottoman mosque located in Hasırcılar Çarşısı (Strawmat Weavers Market) in the Tahtakale neighborhood, of the Eminönü district of Istanbul, Turkey. History The Rüstem Pasha Mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Grand Vizier Damat Rüstem Pasha (husband of one of the daughters of Suleiman the Magnificent, Princess Mihrimah). Rüstem Pasha died in July 1561 and the mosque was built after his death from around 1561 until 1563. Architecture Exterior The mosque was built on a high terrace over a complex of vaulted shops, whose rents were intended to financially support the mosque complex. Narrow, twisting interior flights of steps in the corners give access to a spacious courtyard. The mosque has a double porch with five domed bays, from which projects a deep and low roof supported by a row of columns. Interior The Rüstem Pasha Mosque is famous for its large quantities of exquisite İznik tiles, set in a very wide variety of beautiful floral and geometric designs, which cover not only the façade of the porch but also the mihrab, minbar, walls, columns and on the façade of the porch outside. These tiles exhibit the early use of a tomato-red color that would become characteristic of İznik pottery. Some of the tiles, particularly those in a large panel under the portico to the left main entrance, are decorated with sage green and dark manganese purple that are characteristic of the earlier 'Damascus ware' coloring scheme. No other mosque in Istanbul makes such a lavish use of these tiles. The plan of the building is basically that of an octagon inscribed in a rectangle. The main dome rests on four semi-domes; not on the axes but in the diagonals of the building. The arches of the dome spring from four octagonal pillars— two on the north, two on the south— and from piers projecting from the east and west walls. To the north and south are galleries supported by pillars and by small marble columns between them.

  • [28] Cowpers HF6
    12/07/18 05:49 Cowpers Un cowper moderne consiste en cylindre vertical en acier de 6 à 9 m de diamètre et s'élevant à 20 à 35 m. Cette enceinte est remplie de briques réfractaires dont la nature dépend de leur rôle : on a des briques isolantes qui protègent la face interne du blindage du cowper, et des briques stockant et restituant la chaleur. Ces dernières servent à la construction du puits de combustion, où se déploie la flamme, et du rûchage, un empilement de briques perforées qui absorbe la chaleur des fumées. Le puits est souvent intégré dans le cylindre où il occupe environ un tiers de la section du four. Les plus gros cowpers sont dotés de puits externes qui permettent de mieux isoler la zone de combustion de celle d’accumulation/restitution de chaleur. La chauffe étant plus lente que le refroidissement, chaque haut fourneau est doté de trois, parfois quatre, cowpers passant alternativement dans chaque phase. En fonctionnement continu, un cowper restitue sa chaleur pendant environ 30 min, avant que le vent soit orienté vers le cowper qui vient de finir une réchauffe de 50 min (durée à laquelle il faut ajouter les phases d'inertage et de mise en pression, qui durent 10 min). Un cowper moderne peut réchauffer environ 1,4 tonne de vent à 1 200 °C, par tonne de fonte. Lorsqu’il restitue sa chaleur, c'est donc, pour un haut fourneau produisant 6 000 t de fonte par jour, un four d'une puissance d'environ 100 MW. La chauffe est effectuée par combustion d'une partie du gaz produit par le haut fourneau, qui doit être mélangé avec un gaz riche pour atteindre les températures souhaitées. Source: Wikipedia Modern cowper consists in vertical steel cylinder 6 to 9 m and a diameter amounting to from 20 to 35 m. This enclosure is filled with refractory bricks whose nature depends on their role has insulating bricks that protect the inner face of the shield cowper, and storing and reproducing bricks heat. The latter are used in the construction of wells combustion, where the flame spreads, and rûchage, a stack of perforated bricks which absorbs heat of the fumes. The well is often integrated into the cylinder where it occupies about one third of the furnace section. The biggest feature cowpers outer wells to better isolate the combustion zone of the accumulator / heat delivery. Heating is slower than cooling, each blast furnace has three, sometimes four, stoves passing alternately in each phase. In continuous operation, cowper restores its heat for about 30 minutes before the wind is facing cowper who just finished a 50-minute heats (time at which there are the phases inerting and pressurization, lasting 10 min). Modern cowper can warm wind of about 1.4 tons to 1200 ° C, per ton of pig iron. When the heat returns, so this is for a blast furnace producing 6000 t of pig iron per day, a furnace with a capacity of approximately 100 MW. The heater is powered by combustion of part of the product through the furnace, which must be mixed with the rich gas to achieve the desired gas temperature.

  • [30] Montagne de Bueren
    05/07/18 05:49 La montagne de Bueren est un escalier de la ville de Liège reliant le quartier Féronstrée et Hors-Château au Péri et à la citadelle traversant les Coteaux. Description De la rue Hors-Château, laissant, à droite, le couvent des Ursulines et, à gauche, l'impasse des Ursulines serpenter à flanc de coteau jusqu'aux Terrasses des Minimes, les 374 marches mènent Au-Péri puis à la citadelle. La rue mesure, en totalité, 260 mètres et les escaliers 194 mètres. La pente moyenne de l'escalier est de près de 28 %. L'ascension est fort heureusement facilitée par la présence, à intervalles réguliers, de paliers, où quelques bancs permettent de regarder à l'aise la ville qui, petit à petit, se révèle. On découvre d'abord la masse grise de l'îlot Saint-Georges, la haute silhouette de la cité administrative, puis la coulée miroitante de la Meuse sous le pont des Arches. Chaque année, le 1er samedi d'octobre, lors de la Nocturne des Coteaux de la Citadelle, l'escalier, plongé dans l'obscurité, se voit éclairé par 3 000 bougies présentant au public un spectacle chatoyant. Historique Ce nouveau chemin, établi au départ de l'impasse du Thier des Begards tennant sur Hors-Château, est terminé en 1880 à la suite d'une décision prise par le conseil communal en mars 1875. Il doit permettre un accès rapide de la garnison stationnée à la citadelle vers le centre de la ville en cas d'invasion ou de soulèvement populaire et, plus prosaïquement, interdiction est faite à cette garnison d'encore passer par la rue Pierreuse où sont établis nombre d'estaminets et où œuvrent des péripatéticiennes. Ces fonctions ne durent qu'une dizaine d'années, la citadelle étant déclassée en 1891. Source: Wikipedia

  • [31] The house of Pennywise the Dancing Clown
    13/06/18 05:49 An abandoned amusement park, it's really something special just because a park is the animation, the sound, the crowd. When the sun rises and reveals the fairgrounds in the middle of the vegetation, we almost expect to see tumble Pennywise the Dancing Clown. If the night had passed without a hitch, it was otherwise in the morning we were caught buddy Seb and I by the guards who were doing their morning rounds with the dogs. We were forced to erase our memory cards, and were forcibly thrown out of the enclosure. Fortunately, there are recovery programs :-)

  • [34] Chernobyl Diaries control room
    23/06/18 05:49 I had seen this control room in the movie "Chernobyl Diaries" (a movie I did not like at all), and I dreamed of visiting it one day. It's been done since this summer. Until now, the abandoned place that had inspired me most, impressed, and made me dream, was the ECVB powerplant, with its titanic dimentions, a dark dead and silent world, where rusty hues barely hang the weak Rays of light, under a layer of ashes, asbestos, and dust. In total contrast to the dark and almost oppressive atmosphere of the ECVB, this control room is extremely bright and colorful thanks to this magnificent glass roof. It almost feels like a fairy tale ballroom, amidst laughter and music. The consoles in the control room are covered with a layer of dust that testifies to the years of abandonment (it has been closed since 2005), but the whole remains clean and clean. Thank you to my companions of this adventure, Sophie, Lise, and Jef, for their patience, their dynamism and my questionable music program during the many hours I was driving. J'avais vu cette salle de contrôle dans le film "Chernobyl Diaries" (un film que je n'ai pas aimé du tout), et je rêvais de la visiter un jour. C'est chose faite depuis cet été. Jusqu'à présent, le lieux abandonné qui m'avait le plus inspiré, impressionné, et fait rêver, était la centrale ECVB, avec ses dimensions titanesques, monde sombre, mort, et silencieux, où les teintes de rouille accrochent à peine les faibles rayons de lumière, sous une couche de cendres, d'amiante, et de poussière. En totale opposition à l'ambiance sombre et presque oppressante de l'ECVB, cette salle de contrôle est extrêmement lumineuse et colorée, grâce à cette magnifique verrière. On se croirait presque dans une salle de bal d'un conte féerique, au milieu des rires et de la musique. Les consoles de la salle de contrôle sont couvertes d'une couche de poussière qui témoigne des années d'abandon (elle est fermée depuis 2005), mais l'ensemble reste propre et net. Merci à mes compagnons de cette aventure, Sophie, Lise, et Jef, pour leur patience, leur dynamisme et ma programmation musicale douteuse pendant les nombreuses heures où je conduisais.
